    I know of a few Facebook groups and Reddit has a big group,although I am not sure how they would swerve traffic away from here. I would think that maybe people might be members of multiple sites/groups.

    20-40 posts a day would burn anybody out. Its true that life gets in the way and also that interest can start to wane.

    We have lost a lot of members that use to post multiple times per day. Some still pop in every now and then but not near as much as they use to-

    Off the top of my head-
    CHristmas a holic
    Snow in texas

    Just Seawaters and Xmas365 probably had more than 10,000 posts each every year back then.

    Happy New Years Eve MMC! The rainy Monday is gone. Today should clear up some and be decent for the ball drop. Not too cold and no rain/snow issues. I'm working half day and leaving hopefully by noon. Having a little "party" at home tonight with a little family and a friend or 2. Have a great New Years Eve!

    I'm in the Christmas Group on Reddit. I like it here much better, and i'm not just saying that. Too much spam and junk posts. Also, for the most part they are only super active from November - January. After that, it is just the 24/7 Christmas folks like myself who still post countdown stuff, when we hit the 25th of each month, and each of the milestone days, etc..

    I love our daily countdown thread here, one of the biggest reasons i joined the site.

    And now here we are on New Year's Eve at last! I am glad this day is here. Truth be told, once Christmas was over, i wanted it to be January 1st again. Each year between around December 26 - now, i feel like i'm frozen in time. It is a weird feeling seeing the tree up and decorations outside, but knowing that Christmas is "over" instead of when i put the decorations up in November and look at them and realize Christmas is "coming".

    But, after January 1st, any decoration I see, or any item in a shop / store, its like my brain/heart has "reset", and its "Christmas is coming" again! Can't wait to ring in the new year's with you guys! This evening is going to be fun!

    Happy last day of 2019!
    I’m heading out soon to make a big food shopping trip. I’m having the family over tomorrow, I’ll be making lasagna for dinner. We’re going out with my in laws later tonight so I’ll get a break from cooking :)
    I hope everyone is well and has a happy and safe New Years Eve!!!

    Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Can’t believe the year is over already. It’s still snowing here, I don’t think I’ll go out today on my day off. No need to anyway, as we have food for the next few days. Loki is going to enjoy the snow on his walk for sure.

    David and I will be enjoying end-of-year reviews and comedy shows tonight, trying to stay awake until midnight, which we seldom do. We may take down our tree and decorations tomorrow. Or else it’ll wait until we both have a day off together later in January.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful last day of 2019!

    Happy New Year's Eve!!
    I am working today until about 2 or so. We are going over to a friend's house tonight...they only live about 10 mins away. My husband is making baked stuffed shrimp, it is my favorite. We are having dinner and will play games. Then we will leave at 12:05...once the ball has
    Hope everyone has a safe and great night!

    Woke up to a winter wonderland outside. :)

    Just taking it easy this morning, enjoying my coffee before I go out and clear the ramp off.

    My mom was born on New Year's Day, so as a family we never did anything major to bring in the New Year. My sister and I would play rummy and listen to the top 100 countdown and everybody else watched television. A lot of times my mom had to work on the 1st as she was a nurse's aide at a convalescent home, the same one my brother was in for his second round of rehab. The lady that answered the phones in the rehab section worked with my mom all those years ago and knew who my brother was right away as his eyes were the same blue as my mom's were. Family is everywhere. :)
    Anyhow, I don't have any plans for this evening, but if I am not too tired, I'll try and pop in here to ring in the New Year.

    Be safe, everyone, and have a blessed day!

    Good Final 2019 Morning, Everyone.

    Hard to believe isn't it? Not only is the year ending but so are the teens, as we move boldly forward into the 20's. Seems to me such a short time ago that we were passing the 2000 mark and just look how far we are into this century. Frightening!
    Well regardless, at midnight tonight, we will be transitioning into a new Countdown thread. Get you final posts ready!

    Enjoyed reading your theories on why our posting is down. They make sense, but one thing not addressed is the sudden, HUGE drop from 2016 to 2017. We declined by 69 percent in just the one year. Both before and since, movement was relatively slow. Any theories on that particular statistic?
    No complaints of course. We have a real nice group here. No need for it to be large just for the sake of being large! It's just an issue of curiosity for me.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday and a Rousing Remainder of the year, Folks!

    Good morning all! Happy New Year's Eve

    It is very windy today and a few snowflakes falling, but not much. They said we could get a coating, but it all seems to be going north of me.

    Yesterday we spent time changing Henry's room around. Then putting together one of the Arcade systems he got for Christmas, we realized that one of the joysticks did not work completely. So, I rewired the player 2 joystick, which is oddly not used because you cannot play three players (yes there is a player 3 joystick), so that now the player 2 joystick is the player 1 joystick. I had to rewire the buttons too. Luckily it was easy to access and everything. The annoying thing was that when I opened up the panel, there was an excessive amount of glue on everything! So much that strings of glue were all over the place. Oh well, at least I got it working so Henry can play it. We will still call the company so they can replace the board.

    Happy New Year's Eve and Merry Christmas. Half day in the office today. Will stop on the way home to pick up some deli for tomorrow. I also have to make my weekly $2 deposit into my retirement fund (lotto).

    Windy and more warm today. 57 on the drive in heading for 68. It will be a quiet evening at the house tonight. Christmas is close to be back in the Christmas shed. We'll do more today and tomorrow. Should be done over the weekend.

    Another possible reason for post declines is the economy strengthening. Having more people working means less time for playing.

    Today will be spent mostly cleaning things up. Henry has a friend coming over to stay the night and currently the living room and kitchen are disasters.

    New Year's Eve has been the night my wife and I tend to take down our Christmas decor inside. We also watch V for Vendetta. Not sure how that started, but we have been doing it for the last several years now.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

    Good morning, y'all! Hope everyone is in a jolly mood on the last big event of 2019.

    Plans for this evening? Well, there is some food on the smoker. Should be done about 5. After that, we might go to a movie....or we might stay home and watch a movie. Who knows?

    What I do know is that I will struggle trying to stay awake until 11:00 central. If I can make it here at 10 central, I should be fine. However, even 10 is a struggle. Maybe a nap today will help.

    If for some reason (sleep) this is my last post on this thread for the year, I want you all to know how much fun I had. Like always, it has been a blast. I hope you have a Happy New Year!!!
